Having dined or lunched at Raya 4 times during my month's stay at Cha Am I found that we had a slightly different experience each time.....but each was excellent. On our last day we went back for lunch and this time it was packed and customers had to be turned away. Having tried so many Cha Am restaurants I can... More

Ate inside where it was air conditioned but had al fresco as well. The food was delicious and some of the best I ever had, drinks were equally as good and the staff fantastic and always present when you wanted them. Prices were as high as I thought they would be considering the surroundings. Would certainly return and highly recommended.

Inside A/C and a lovely deck with live music the evening we were there. Excellent service and a large menu. We had the Mozzarella and Mango appetizer, delish! My cousins who live part time in Cha Am swear by this place and their papaya salad with prawns. I had the summer rolls, loaded with seafood. Pricey but you get a... More

The food is unbelievable ! One of the best restaurant in Thailand I've ever try ! You must try Homok in Coconut and Jumpoodong (fresh crab with chilly and garlic) ! You will never regret!

Recently, we ate 3 times at this restaurant and were very satisfied> It has a local as well as a western food menu, and excellent desserts (the chocolate lava is greatly recommended). I got addicted to the snow fish but the local dishes got high marks from my wife and friends. The restaurant has a very nice retro decor and... More

It doesn't get much better than this. The restaurant must be the best in Cha Am. Having had a delicious lunch there last week I decided to postpone my review until after our dinner there last night. I can now report that on both occasions we had a truly superb meal I chose French on both occasions and my guest... More

Very good food. Be careful on the choice of your meals, the price could be OK or...expensive. We chose thaï local food and the price was pretty OK, also considering the atmosphere of the restaurant which is quiet and very beautiful. Nice staff. They give you some mosquitos repellents to have a pleasant meal outside.

Just across the road from the beach, towards the far southern end of the beach road. Very attractive grounds with several outside seating areas and an opulent air conditioned inside room. Two years ago we went several times during our annual holiday. It was expensive but we had few acceptable choices whenever we wanted European food nearby. Last year we... More

Really excellent restaurant although the live music was playing to an empty garden due to the rain, we would have loved to have been able to enjoy that too. No drama though, best restaurant in Cha-am by a stretch.

Sitting on the terrace, staff seem to forget you. While having your pre-dinner drink, you have to wait before getting menus and ordering. After dinner, nobody asks if you want to have coffee or desert. Would expect a bit more from this restaurant. Food ok but nothing very special taking into consideration the price.
